- Genealogists or
history buffs seem to have a special attraction to pictures.
- Whether they depict
events, families, places, or structures, they are valued
- for the information
that they hold. An image that is in some way related to
- us is highly valued.
For those of us that hold these feelings, it's difficult to
- explain and accept
the number of vintage photographs that are cast - off,
- no matter the reason.
We have all seen many of these and wonder who
- might have originally
owned and valued these now discarded items.
- From time to time
we are going to feature a photograph that has been
- reclaimed from
such a fate and we'll post it in this section along with
- as many details
as we have available. If you can supply information on
- the picture(s),
please contact us and your comments will be added to the
- page. Thank you
for helping us rescue some treasures from the past.
enlarged view of the left and right sides of the picture.
- The picture was
purchased at an estate sale, and while that is not unusual,
- the size of the
gathering and the ribbons that are worn indicate a special
- event. We assume
that the picture was taken in the Shelby area, but we
- can not be sure.
The locale could be one of many country settings suited
- for groups, large
and small, used in that period (maybe 1890 -1920)? Please
- examine the detailed
(left and right) pictures and give us your opinions.
- When, where, who,
why? We'd really like to hear from you !
- The photo was rescued
by John and Doris Yetzer and they submitted it
- to be our first
- If you have information
about this picture, please email us...
